    RHU witnessed a highly exciting Physics Day organized by RHU Physics and Astronomy Club on April 10, 2019. It included numerous activities all prepared by RHu students and their advisor Dr. Houssam Salami for the sole purpose of the love of physics. From a presentation about “Interstellar Adventure through Space time," to Physics experiments and educational games in the open green areas, to live streaming of the first ever black hole image, and to a football game between the Physics and Astronomy Club and RHU Dorms residents. The event culminated with a star gazing experience where students enjoyed the high quality image of the moon seen via the telescope.

     

     

    The presentation was delivered by RHU students beginning with Oussama Matar who gave a brief introduction about stars.

Finally Elio Eid presented the String Theory and mentioned the ultimate goal of every physicist which is to unify the four fundamental forces in what is called the Theory of Everything. The students along with their advisor then interacted remarkably for about 15 minutes with the audience.

     

     

    Following the presentation physics experiments were conducted in the green area from 12:30 to 5 p.m. to include experiments on Faraday's Law, Van de Graaff Generator, Chladini Plates, Equilibrium, Gyroscope, Thermal Generator, Plasma ball, Non Newtonian Fluid, etc., in addition to educational games.
